The morning paper brings word that Charlie Hallowell, owner/master pizzaiolo at Oakland's Pizzaiolo and Boot & Shoe Service, has taken over the space next door to Boot & Shoe, Café DiBartolo (3310 Grand Avenue), and plans to expand into it. Hallowell tells the Chron, "My intention is to keep it as a great neighborhood coffee shop during the day, and have some connection to Boot and Shoe at night." Also of note, there's a nice outdoor area in back which should make for some welcome added seating in the warmer months.
